MLB 11: The Show doesn't change a ton of content from last year, but that's not a bad thing. It makes enough small improvements to the visuals, animations, and gameplay mechanics to keep the experience fresh while advancing the series. It is by far the best baseball game ever made, without a doubt. If you're a baseball fan, sports fan, or even if you simply own a PS3, this game is a must-have.
I have always been a big baseball fan and love the graphics of this game but this game really ****. No matter what you do to try and win the game or how many different ways you try to win, the computer always seems to find away around it. There is no reason to play any game if you have no chance of winning the thing. I hate this game with a passion, because of that. I have no use for this game. The only thing this game does for me is frustrates me to the point where if the creator of the game was in front of me, that I would punish them for making a game that cheats to no end.
New control schemes that work this well have been long overdue in baseball games, especially when you consider that we've been hanging onto the standard pitch meter for the past eight years. It's time to move on and analog controls are the first step in the right direction.
Does an admirable job at upgrading the leading baseball simulator. The new analog control scheme feels natural for hitting, pitching and fielding, while the announcers have a more lifelike flow to their conversations. It seems that only some stiff Road To The Show fielding as well as unreliable online are the only blemishes on an otherwise faultless package.
Being a huge baseball fan and gamer, it's never been too difficult to find an MLB game that has the authenticity and stays true to the game, at least not in the last few years with MLB The Show around. No game has me as hooked as this game does. Everything is pretty much how baseball is. All the players are there, and if they're not, then you can do a roster update as it becomes available and you're set. Season and Franchise are both just as addicting as ever with small updates. Road to the Show is just as real and a great mode as the others. I can't say enough about this game, it's a must have for all baseball fans.
I hate baseball. Cant stand watching it. That said this game is incredible. 10 out of 10. Best sports game on the PS3. Best baseball game ever made. The graphics are amazing. All the stadiums are so detailed. Even the minor league fields are accurate. The physics in this is are top notch too. I love playing the home run derby at heigh elevation maps. It actually takes into account the thinner air and that makes it so much easier to drop bombs.
If you say you don't like this game you either A don't have a ps3 and wish you did or B you are not a baseball fan. This is a great game. Makes you feel like you are there in the action. 360 owners I'm sorry this game is not available to you I really am but get over it.
The pros is that this game finally included analog controls for pitching, fielding and batting. Also the many ways you can customize the game cameras is a plus. Besides that it's the same game with updated rosters. If you own last years game you pretty much have the same game as MLB the Show 11. On a side note I'm very bitter that SCEA is turning off the servers for MLB 10. Not even EA shuts down servers this quick. SCEA has been doing this for the past 3 years and I will not buy a new game from them. Get last years game to get you through the season and then buy MLB 11 around December for $10 used off of Gamefly. This game is not worth $60!
1) Still no playoff tournament mode.
2) Online is really bad (lags)
3) Presentation is the same as prior versions (very stale and now boring).
4) Franchise bugs, wait for patch again.
5) Graphical glitches (ie players going through walls) graphics over bright. 6) Collision detection still bad.
7) Load time and game saving is painfully slow.
8) Features removed from the game (ie pitch count button)
9) Developer is lazy with player portraits on the stock roster that shipped.
10) New game, new bugs, old bugs, same shish different day. $20 DLC at best!
MLB 11 is a good game, but 08, 09 and 10 were also good games, the only reason to upgrade is for rosters and online, but online is still broken.
